Beautiful Day in The Park

We can’t thank everyone who came out to our very first fundraising event enough. We had such beautiful weather and such wonderful people! Not to mention some amazing photos… thank you so much to both Redlite Photos and The Color Crew for sharing your images with us. Make sure to go like their facebook pages (here and here) and check out some of their other work!

Of course also huge thanks goes out to a group of our favorite fans, the whole Krampuslauf family. From helping us get the park to sending kids around on stilts to busk in the dark, we really couldn’t do it without you. We can’t wait for Krampus on the 12th!!! Oh! And if you didn’t pick up a shirt and you’ve been regretting it ever since (I know I would be!) you can get one from our ‘shop’. It isn’t a very fancy set-up, and if you’d like more than one you’ll have to message us so we can combine shopping, but check it out!

Some Fiery Fun

Last weekend we had some time to play around with a collaboration initiated by Lauren Raske, a fellow Philly fire spinner. We were also joined by Lauren’s frequent performance partner, Liana Cameris. We grabbed some footage with a few iPhones and a gopro, check out the video below.

The song used is by the ever talented Gina Ferrera, remixed by Michael NightTime, and can be downloaded here.

5 minute wicking tutorial

Holy cow. If you’ve ever tried to wick a set of fans, you may be familiar with the utter frustration. Sewing with wire, and it snaps. Stitching with some kevlar thread, but it doesn’t last… with how many wicks all our ladies use, we’ve been trying to figure out a better way. Enter the amazing Terry Fields! We all had a bit of a face-palm moment when he demonstrated his fast wire technique. Works so well, makes so much sense. Less than 5 minutes a wick, it is absolutely amazing. But let’s let Terry show you the magic way:

Fun bonus video!

While we were putting our recent promo together, we realized we had enough coverage to cut together a whole performance! We shot this on a rooftop on the edge of Fishtown, in Philadelphia, right at sunset. (Thanks to VJ Kevlar for the roof access!) The song is a remix of Flight Facilities – Crave You, from one of our performance mixes by the lovely Foxy La Tigre. The video was directed by Chris Palo. Enjoy!

Photoshoot with Lindsey Tweed

After performing in front of the boathouse at Glow in the Park (some good photos of the event are here) we decided to walk over to the pavilion to do a little photo shoot with the lovely Lindsey Tweed. How rare, we were all in the same costume at the end of the night! A beautiful night, and a wonderful location, it was an opportunity not to be missed. She got some great shots. We even bullied our steadfast safties to jump in on the shoot. 🙂 Thanks Lindsey!! (Clickable photos after the jump)

What a fun night!

Wow, what a fun crowd. Glow in the Park was a super fun night. The performance space was beautiful, the weather lovely and the crowd awesome. FDR Park is such a gem hidden down by the highways in South Philly. We performed in front of the boathouse, with the Swedish American Museum lit up behind us. Later in the evening we walked down to the pavilion and took some photos with Lindsey, a friend of Lux Arati. I’m sure there were tons of photos snapped during the performance, but so far I haven’t been able to track any down. There was also a camera guy from CBS3, but I don’t know if they did a story, I haven’t been able to find anything about that, either. If anyone does come across it, please let us know!

This was the first time they’ve held this event in FDR, and I hope they have it next year, we’d love to come back and dazzle the crowd again!
